Press Release:

Anderson’s Bookshop is thrilled to welcome noted actor, screenwriter, director and author Ethan Hawke, and bestselling author Greg Ruth to the Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville to celebrate the release of Indeh on Saturday, June 11 at 5:30 PM! Tickets available at the link.

The authors will speak and take a few questions from the audience, then move into the signing portion of the evening.

Please note that there will NOT be a posed photo opportunity at this event! We will have someone available to take a candid photo of you with the authors with your camera/phone while you meet, but due to time constraints they will not be able to look up or pose for any photos. They will not be able to personalize books.

EVENT DETAILS
Please purchase your tickets through the Brown Paper Tickets HERE and bring your printed ticket to the event. Tickets are only available through this link and are not available in our stores or over the phone.

You will receive your book when you arrive at the event. They will NOT be available for pick up before that time. Books purchased at other vendors are not permitted in the signing line.

PLEASE NOTE that this event follows the author’s and publisher’s wishes and may mean limits on photos and the number of signed or personalized books. Anderson’s Bookshop is not responsible for changes made by the author to the guidelines prior to or during the event. Your understanding is appreciated.

The year is 1872. The place, the Apache nations, a region torn apart by decades of war. INDEH captures the deeply rich narrative of two nations at war-as told through the eyes of Naiches and Geronimo-who then try to find peace and forgiveness. INDEH not only paints a picture of some of the most magnificent characters in the history of our country, but it also reveals the spiritual and emotional cost of the Apache Wars. Based on exhaustive research, INDEH offers a remarkable glimpse into the raw themes of cultural differences, the horrors of war, the search for peace, and, ultimately, retribution. The Apache left an indelible mark on our perceptions about the American West, and INDEH shows us why.
